Rebounding Bundy records best outing of season

ANAHEIM -- Orioles top pitching prospect Dylan Bundy turned in his best outing of the season on Tuesday, tossing six scoreless innings for Class A Advanced Frederick.

Bundy, who picked up the win, went a season-high six innings and was able to stay under his 75-pitch limit, which will hold for all of his outings this year coming off Tommy John surgery. The right-hander faced 22 batters and allowed three hits and two walks while picking up a strikeout.

Former Orioles pitch coach "Mark Connor texted me. He's at Myrtle Beach with the Rangers. ... He was watching Bundy's outing," Orioles manager Buck Showalter said. "He was doing real well through the fifth, started elevating the ball after that."

Bundy has made four starts for Frederick and is 1-1 with a 6.11 ERA. Showalter has said previously that he expected Bundy to struggle initially when he was moved up from Short-Season Aberdeen before finding his footing. The Orioles have not ruled out Bundy helping the big league club this season, although given his pitch count restrictions, it's unlikely.
